3 January: Goals & Iran Background


I can identify and summarize aspects of Iranian history and culture, drawing evidence from a video and information I find through simple research (RI 2).

Entry Task:

As you come into class, grab a new unit vocabulary handout and a notecard off the front table. Today we will begin our final unit, so use the first few minutes to reflect and set goals. On your notecard, write the following:

  • Name

  • Current grade

  • Do you think this grade is an accurate representation of your skills and effort in this class? (If not, share why you believe this.)

  • Goal Grade: What grade will you work to end the term with?

  • What do you need to do to earn this goal grade? (makeup work, retakes, get my help, focus on the final unit, etc.)

What’s Going On:

Today we will be focusing on the Middle Eastern country of Iran. Together, we will watch portions of a documentary to gather information on the country to have background knowledge before beginning our next book. As you watch, answer the questions on your worksheet.

After watching, do some simple research to complete the map activities.

Exit Task:

Turn your work into the bin and prepare to play a round of Blooket with our new vocabulary to end the day.
